We had another excellent stay at the Costa Linda. The beach was phenomenal with soft white sand and beautiful turquoise water. It is on the best section of Eagle Beach. The surf from Hurricane Sandy (Aruba is out of the hurricane belt) actually made the beach better, believe it or not.
All the rooms are now renovated with completely new tile throughout, new cabinets in the kitchen and both full baths, new appliances in the full kitchen and the master bath is now remodeled and much much nicer with a beautiful and more functional walk-in shower.
As usual the staff if excellent and pleasant.
The owners approved the removal of personal items (to be stored in a secure place) from palapa huts by the beach in an attempt to stop early risers who put towels under the palapa and then walk away for hours, thereby stopping others from enjoying the gorgeous view. This a a very good and long overdue process that was the pet peeve of many. Now we all have an opportunity for a good fabulous location at the beach. It seems to have worked. All resorts should do this, but this is the only one that I have actually seen enforce the rules.
Now for he only negative. The restaurant is very expensive for a place to dine at, at a timeshare resort as well as the drinks. Fortunately, all units have a full kitchen, large fridge/freezer, plenty of cabinets (all the kitchen amenities in most folks homes) and you can simply cook your own food and buy your own booze/ wine/ beer at the store and party in your 2-3 bedroom suite or at the beach. Now some may say that they are on vacation and should not have to cook. To those individuals I say, don't stay at a timeshare that has a full kitchen, stay at a hotel. There are dozens of restaurants that are better than the one on site and cheaper too if you want to dine out, which we do about half the nights.
They now have a kids small playground and movie night on the beach for kids and then two hours later for adults.
